Abstract : Recent counterinsurgency operations in Southeast Asia have pointed up the importance of tribal and other ethnic minority groups in under-developed countries susceptible to communist-inspired insurgency. Such groups, because of either (1) a history of hostility between them and the dominant ethnic group; (2) their location in remote areas and consequent lack of close contact with the national government and its representatives; or (3) the fact that they occupy terrain of strategic importance both to insurgent and government forces; or (4) a combination of these reasons, will probably constitute primary targets for subversion in future communist wars of 'national liberation.'
